My heart and my flesh may fail,
But God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever ~Psalm 73:26~

Welcome to worship at Dayton Avenue.  You may have come today refreshed after a great week, or you may be hanging on by a thread, having had a difficult week.  God knows, and He has a word of hope for each of us.  Thank you for coming today. 

Today we will be honoring our veterans.  The freedoms that we enjoy (but which other believers around the world do not) come at a great cost.  As Christians we must be good stewards – may God help us to worship and serve Him faithfully.  Thank you, veterans, for your sacrifice and courage on our behalf.  God bless you.

This evening at 6:00 is our annual special business meeting when we preview next year’s ministry budget.  We’ll praise the Lord for all He has done during the past year and share opportunities that await us in the coming year.  There will be some other recommendations concerning new committee members and special expense approval.  We encourage you to come and be a part of this important process of our church family life. 

Each year at Thanksgiving we minister to our community by delivering food baskets.  We ask our church family to nominate people you know would be encouraged by this simple act of kindness.  Having a direct connection with someone in our church opens doors for witness and makes this truly a ministry.  Fill out the insert and put it in the offering plate and/or help assemble and deliver the baskets.  Speaking of Christmas, we have some wonderful special programs coming in December, and you can be involved.

Covenant Sunday will be November 24th.  It is a sweet opportunity for us to renew our commitment to the Lord and to one another and to fellowship around the Lord’s Table. We love you. God bless you.
